Free and Low-Cost Self-Care Ideas

Self-care is a BIG-time buzz-word these days! Everyone is talking about it but sometimes “self-care” ends up meaning you’re shelling out the bucks for taking care of yourself. And, if spending money is a problem for you then doing “self-care” can mean an easy excuse and justification to spend money you maybe shouldn’t. 

Here are some free and low-cost self-care ideas! 

  • Move your body

  • Turn off the notifications on your phone
  • Take a social media sabbatical
